Abu Camp

Named after a very special elephant bull, Abu Camp nestles in hardwood forest at the fringe of a large lagoon. The campsite is surrounded by open grasslands and waterways fringed with papyrus – a stay at this unique property ultimately means entering into the natural world of a resident elephant herd.

There are only 6 ensuite guest tents at Abu Camp, all distinct in decoration but equal in luxury. Expect glamorous accents everywhere, from outdoor showers or copper bathtubs to personal plunge pools embedded in teak decks. The central areas are just as stylish, with a library, dining room, lounge area, gym and shared pool.

Activities at Abu Camp are divided between interactions with the semi-habituated local elephant herd and the completely wild animals which inhabit the terrain surrounding this amazing camp. Get to know individual members of the herd, go on morning and afternoon game drives in search of species such as leopard and hyena, and take a mokoro excursion along a tranquil channel.

Other great things to do include a walk in the bush with an experienced guide, bird-watching, scenic flights and a ‘Star Bed’ experience – a life-changing night spent sleeping out under the stars, with the low rumblings of elephants as a backing track.

Zambia Overview

Why should I travel to Zambia? Apart from being the site of the magnificent Victoria Falls, Zambia also offers game-rich wildlife parks that are relatively unspoiled by mass tourism. For the more adventurous, there are walking safaris and canoeing trips along the Zambezi River.

When is the best time to see animals in Zambia? Gameviewing is best during the dry season from Jun-Oct when the animals congregate at remaining waterholes.

What is the climate like in Zambia? There are 3 distinct seasons – cool and dry from May-July (23°-25°C), hot and dry from August-October (30°-40°C), and warm and wet from November-April (28°-35°C).

What can I combine Zambia with? Zambia’s neighbours – Botswana, Malawi or Zimbabwe – which all offer amazing scenery and wildlife. Or combine with South Africa and explore picturesque Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Cape Winelands.

How to get to Zambia? There are regular flights daily from Johannesburg in South Africa to Lusaka, where you can board connecting flights to a range of safari camps. There are also regular flights from Jo’burg into Livingstone, a large town close to the Victoria Falls. It is also possible to fly to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and then transfer by road to Zambia.
